Bakuchiol (pronounced buh-koo-chee-all), is a plant-based skincare ingredient that is effective against, among others, wrinkles, fine lines and acne. An excellent ingredient to have (processed in a serum) on your bathroom shelf.

What is Bakuchiol and how does it differ from Retinol?

Both ingredients have similar effects in terms of skin rejuvenating benefits. Bakuchiol's action is milder and, unlike retinol, is plant-based. The vegan Bakuchiol comes from the seeds and leaves of the psoralea corylifolia plant (the babchi plant).

Despite its strong roots in traditional Eastern medicine, Bakuchiol is relatively new to skin care formulas. However, it has been well established (including in our independent clinical studies): it promotes skin renewal, stimulates your skin's collagen production, can reduce hyperpigmentation, soften fine lines and wrinkles, and because of its anti-inflammatory properties can reduce acne.

Bakuchiol is excellent for people with normal and sensitive skin.

Five benefits of Bakuchiol for your skin.
If you are still in doubt, here are five proven benefits of bakuchiol as an ingredient in your skincare routine:

1. Protects your skin cells from external stressors.
Bakuchiol is a strong antioxidant, and antioxidants play a big role in maintaining healthy skin. Antioxidants also help prevent premature skin aging.

2. Reduces wrinkles and fine lines
Like retinol, bakuchiol tells your cells to make collagen, "plumping up" your skin to reduce lines and wrinkles.

3. Does not cause dryness or irritation
Bakuchiol is very mild and is not known to cause irritation.

4. Accelerates cell generation
Bakuchiol sends signals to your cells that it's time to boost collagen production and cell renewal.

5. Helps soften and repair skin
By promoting cell renewal and healthy cell regeneration, bakuchiol helps soothe and heal your skin from the inside out.

Another bonus: Although retinol has a reputation for not always mixing well with other ingredients, bakuchiol is safe to use alongside your other favorite actives, including niacinamide, hyaluronic acid, vitamin C and retinol.

We have seen tremendous results in our independent clinical tests on 20 people of different ages, skin types, skin sensitivities and skin colors. 100% of testers said their skin looked healthier and younger after four weeks of using the Reset Bakuchiol serum. Additionally, after 4 weeks, 100% of testers said their skin texture had improved and their skin felt softer. This is something we are secretly quite impressed with ourselves!

How to use it?

Every morning and evening, after cleansing your skin and before applying a moisturizer.

Squeeze the pipette and drop 2-3 drops into your palm, onto your fingertips or directly onto your cleansed face and neck. For optimal hygiene, the tip of the pipette should never come in contact with your face or hands. Gently massage or pat the liquid into your skin. Wait until the serum is fully absorbed and then use a moisturizer to make sure your skin is retaining all the good stuff.
